Mitt Romney's still got a lot of fight in him.

The twice-failed presidential contender, who recently flirted with a third run, is gearing up to enter the ring once again, but this time it's a boxing ring.

Former heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield will go head-to-head with the former Massachusetts governor for a charity event in May, it was recently announced.

"It will either be a very short fight, or I will be knocked unconscious," Romney recently told the Salt Lake City Tribune. "It won't be much of a fight. We'll both suit up and get in the ring and spar around a little bit."

The 68-year-old dormant politician — who's coming in at 6-foot-2, and at last count 185 pounds — will playfully duke it out with the 52-year-old Olympian — last count standing at 6-foot-1 and roughly 222 pounds — at Salt Lake City's Rail Event Center on May 15.

The event's unlikely pairing aims to raise money, ideally through corporate sponsorships, for the non-profit group Charity Vision which fights blindness worldwide.



LMAO

I would like to watch this. Of course the heavyweight champ won't give a serious beating to him, but he'll still give him some jabs and punches.

Edit: Yeah, this appears to be real. Not a real all-out fight and it is Romney fitting a heavychamp, but it is for a charity event, and it'll be sparring...but the heavyweight champ isn't gonna give it his all. He'd wreck Romney and hospitalize him if that were the case.

Wait, seriously? Mitt Romney is going to box against a retired pro? LOLOL

That's going to be entertaining to watch.

Money's on Holyfield since Romney has too much already.

Does Romney have some kind of amateur boxing experience at least? I'll go check.

It will either be a short fight, or he will be knocked unconscious, eh? The two aren't mutually exclusive, and I suspect that were they to be doing anything other than a publicity stunt for a charity the two would be assured to occur simultaneously. He'd go down like a sack of bricks in a matter of seconds. Most people would.

Assuming there aren't any shenanigans behind the charity in question, however, at least he'd be going down like a sack of bricks for a good cause.

He should've done that BEFORE running for president.

They could give both of them giant marshmellow suits for protection.
Can't have somebody being hurt in a charity match.
It'd make things funnier at the very least.

YOU CAN DO IT ROMNEY!!

Just picture Evander Holyfield as Big Bird and dodge all his punches like you dodged the Vietnam War.
